Lawn Drop Spreader

TruFlow 24D

The TruFlow™ 24D is a push-type lawn drop spreader designed for operators to get into tight areas and spread dry topdressing materials. It was designed with landscaping contractors in mind and is built to handle any job. Our commercial drop spreaders can be used by homeowners for residential purposes as well.

The 24D lawn drop spreader can spread materials with up to 30% moisture content.  Baseball coaches use 24D to spread infield mix on their baselines and for spot repairs on the turf areas. Synthetic turf installers use the 24D to spread sand and crumbed rubber on putting greens and for doing finish work on larger sports fields.

The key with successful spreading is to run dry materials that will flow through the small gate. As a rule of thumb, anything that will run between your fingers would spread through the 24D. If the materials have more moisture, the machine may need shaken or bumped to spread it out – a leveling rake will assist in a well finished spread.
The TruFlow 24D lawn drop spreader function is simple: a four wheel stance, the front wheels are used for ground drive power, the operator will lean it onto the back wheels for transport without spreading. Fill the unit with dry topdressing material and tip it on its back two wheels to move it without spreading. When you arrive at the area you want to topdress, set the unit down on all four wheels and begin to push it. The forward wheels begin turning the dispersal drum and spread the material onto the surface in an even 22-24″ width.

Lawn Drop Spreader Moisture Test

How do you know whether or not the material you want to spread will flow well through one of Earth & Turf’s lawn drop spreaders? Simply perform the moisture test. Materials must be dry enough to flow through your fingers when you pick up a handful. As long as the moisture content is 30% or less and the material passes the moisture test, you will be good to go.
